Welcome to the #LeuvenGymkhana

The #LeuvenGymkhana is a hybrid online-offline COVID-proof “treasure hunt” around Leuven open for everyone to participate during the Christmas holidays. 

It consists of several posters displayed at strategic locations in the city that represent and visualise some of the relevant actors and issues related to the food system and food strategy of Leuven (Food Connects), integrated in the Leuven 2030 roadmap’s program on sustainable and healthy food.  

The #LeuvenGymkhana is the outcome of a collective exercise developed by 14 advanced Masters students from KU Leuven along with Prof. Pieter Van den Broeck and Clara Medina García (PhD researcher at KU Leuven & UCM), as a part of the Institutional Aspects of Spatial Planning (IASP) course, taught in the Departments of Architecture and Earth and Environmental Sciences at KU Leuven. 

THE (FOOD STRATEGY) ATLAS

The IASP students have developed an atlas collecting the main discoveries, statements and questions found about the development and governance of the food strategy of Leuven. Each page of the atlas is also a poster in the #LeuvenGymkhana.

We will keep publishing the posters displayed in Leuven together with interactive maps and other additional material in our ATLAS section.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE? 

There are 30 posters distributed among 13 locations around Leuven. In each location you will find an introduction of the actor hosting the posters, some of the findings and open questions related to the development of the Food Strategy and the transformation of the food system in Leuven and some questions to make you think. The QR code of each poster will direct you to the online version of the poster, from where you can react to the question raised and become a member of the #LeuvenGymkhana community. 

Find a map of all poster locations and instructions guiding you from one location to another both in the physical posters in our Instructions Post. Will you manage to find them all?

WHAT’S NEXT? 

Following the #LeuvenGymkhana, we will compile everyone’s reactions and the results of our collective research and share them in an online closing event on 22 January 2021.  

Such event will take the shape of a webinar in which, apart from the IASP students, different actors and stakeholders related to the food strategy, Leuven 2030 and governance in the city will share their views and debate on the said topics.
